's the normally calm waters of lake michigan. the ice, wind and snow, a headache for travelers. tonight abc's meteorologist ginger zee is tracking it all from one of the busiest airports in the nation, chicago. ginger? >> reporter: almost 500 flights were canceled here in chicago alone, causing a domino effect across the nation, ruining some plans and delaying a whole lot of others. the holiday rush is on. airports packed with frustration and fiasco. >> they told us they can't fly us out of here until monday, which is two days after our cruise leaves. >> reporter: more than 1,600 flights yesterday and today, canceled. among those affected -- the apter family. >> it's frustrating. we're going home, we're not happy. their nine months of planning a family trip to peru -- erased. ripple effects from thursday's storm felt all the way to los angeles. >> i had to wait 45 minutes to see somebody to change my next flight. >> reporter: the storm that caused all that unhappiness -- but it ripped scaffolding in new york city today, rocked rough waves across the great lakes, and left far from perfect ro
history of the universe as revealed through occult science in detroit, michigan. i almost used that for my title. he ended up he and his entire family were brutally gruesomely murdered. they were be headed, his children were killed as well, and it was a big sensational story at the time. you can go through the free press archives and find all this coverage and it was never solved. at a certain point i realized it was not far from where i was living so i walked over to check it out and where his house was, so i filed that way and we're the enough, probably a year later there was another murder almost literally across the street. it was a drug thing and these kids were trying to -- their ridge two rival drug houses, they were trying -- these two teenagers were trying to scare off radicals and to do this they ended up killing and then dismembering this guy and scattering body parts around literally across the street from this other murder. again, that was history repeating itself in a way that i found fascinating. i went to the trial and i don't normally cover murder trials. sort of -- i don'
michigan that you saw sent cnn a video he made where he cuts up his nra card. don? >> listen, about putting armed guards in school. that has been proposed before. so it's nothing new. and it's good at least they tried to do something. but they took no personal responsibility. and no intro aspects at all. it was disgusting to most americans. is there any evidence at all that putting armed guards in school will protect children? >> i mean, there just doesn't seem to be any evidence of it. certainly senator bloumenthal doesn't think so and we didn't get a chance to ask questions of the nra, because they didn't take questions from reporters. plenty of parents would not be comfortable with certainly having more guns in schools. for example, in the shooting at columbine high in 1999, don, you'll remember, there was an armed guard at the school, and 13 people died. now, still, there are plenty of gun rights supporters who think the nra's proposal will make schools safer and that gun control is not the answer. >> susan candiotti, thank you very much. >>> lots more on gun control. at 10:00, i'll tal

in michigan, some deliveries delayed. but not the mail. wisconsin post office workers promising to come through for christmas. >> rain sleet and snow. really important to get the packages delivered, >> at lambeau field in green bay, packers fans pitch in to clear the snow from the stadium seats, and in nebraska, weird sights and sounds as high tension wires are blown together in the high winds the misery is moving east. this map shows where the snow is likely to fall tomorrow. ohio. western pennsylvania and upstate new york could get up to one foot of snow. >> pam: time is ticking for lawmakers to reach an agreement, before we head over the fiscal cliff. but - making it more complex - lawmakers are heading home for the holidays. kron4 political analyst michael yaki is here to break down what's happening now. >> the president is on vacation, congress has been on vacation and we have been told that we could get to even hit another recession and they're going on vacation. help me understand that. >> basically, they have no deal and are still trying to reach a deal and they're not going to
unemployment benefits would expire. back to the phones. jim from michigan on our line for democrats. how are you? caller: i am great. how are you. host: where is your city? caller: it is near south bend, indiana near where notre dame is. i have a comment on your previous caller first. one of the impressions one could get with the way he talked to obama is like our spending started with obama -- out of control spending. that was in place with bush. obama inherited it. with our wars in iraq and afghanistan. i am believe that it seems like we have notes choice but to let the fiscal cliff happen because there is no way that we have no choice but to let the fiscal cliff -- there is no way but to let the fiscal cliff happen. guest: that is a popular notion, particularly among republicans. they are not liking the defense cuts. there is a growing sentiment among some of them that if you go over the cliff, you will get actual real $2 dollars in spending cuts. some of them are eager about that. it is not necessarily public thing right now. they are talking to each other and saying, is this the wor
